Led Zeppelin in Milan, July 5, 1971: Hammer of the Slobs (except Jimmy of course)

They all cleaned up a bit by the time we next saw them in Montreux, starting August  7, 1971, including Robert shaving his beard. This is kind of adorable in its own way, though – the early 70s were tough on all of us! – and watching them grow into their godhood was among the great pleasures of the coming few years.

Led Zeppelin, first performance of “Stairway to Heaven”, Belfast, March 5 1971, via ledzeppelin

Was met with polite applause. Lol. I wonder if the audience had any clue about what they’d just heard. I’m sure they figured it out later. 🙂

Stumbled across this show last night, and I’d forgotten how absolutely fantastic Robert’s voice is in it.  Here’s the boot.  Everyone is playing their heart out, but Robert is simply unbelievable.  Forgive the somewhat murky audience recording and take a minute to listen.  Unreal.  

Jimmy has noted that “Stairway to Heaven” didn’t become “STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN” until the US 1973 tour, which sounds about right to me. Contemporary reviews don’t really lock onto it one way or the other; Billboard’s first (very positive) review of LZ IV doesn’t even mention it at all. 

But this is a terrific boot of an important show. Thanks for the link!
